Tesla, in response to German regulators who called the name “Autopilot” misleading, says that 98% of surveyed consumers in Germany understand the limitations and function of its semi-autonomous driving Autopilot feature, reports Fortune. German regulators pressured the automaker to change the name of its Autopilot feature.
Tesla drivers understand Autopilot
On Thursday, the electric car maker released the results of an online survey that was done by puls Marktforschung. The survey asked Tesla owners seven questions about the Autopilot feature, including whether they ever used the feature and if they understand the car warnings that show how it should be used. Most of the owners — a sample of 675 — understand that the driver is expected to maintain control of the car at all times.
